Kingston upon Hull is a unitary authority in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. Until 1 April 1996 it was a non-metropolitan district in Humberside. A third of the Council is elected each year with no election every four years. Since the boundary changes in 2002 until 2018, 59 councillors are elected from 23 wards with each ward electing either 2 or 3 councillors.[1] Following a review, in 2017, by the Local Government Boundary Commission this was reduced to 57 councillors from 21 wards effective from the 2018 elections.[2]

Due to boundary changes every ward and every council seat were up for election on 3 May 2018, new wards "East Carr" and "West Carr" replace East Bransholme and West Bransholme and include part of Sutton Park estate too. Labour, Lib Dems and Conservatives are standing candidates for every seat, Green Party have 9 standing and UKIP five.[3]

Political control[edit]

Prior to 1974, Hull was a county borough, independent from any county council. Under the Local Government Act 1972 it became a non-metropolitan district, with Humberside County Council providing county-level services. The first election to the reconstituted city council was held in 1973, initially operating as a shadow authority before coming into its revised powers on 1 April 1974. Humberside County Council was abolished in 1996 and Hull became a unitary authority. Political control of the council since 1973 has been held by the following parties:[4][5]
